Very clean and sustained route. After pitch 5 we took the right variation. Was a hot day and I think I drank about 4 L of liquids after we got back.

Climbed w/ Peter during Memorial Day weekend. Very nice route and very safe. After the 5.9 roof, the upper pitches keep getting easier and easier but still superb. Very high quality rock, very steep with good exposure.

fatdadFun, but top 50?  Sucess!


I climbed this my first summer in the Valley at age 16. HUGE rockfall down the Spires gully while on the route, at least it sounded huge. I remember it being good but not mindblowingly so. Have to go back to confirm that.

did this in about 4 hours, hot as hell so drove up to TM and ticked off two routes on Pywiack. Too bad another party behind us, I would have screwed around on the 10.c (??) longer... this way just pulled through... oh well. Always good to climb with Michal.

Kick ass climb... did the 50 crowded variation (5.10a)... almost alone on the route, another party started late behind us. Amazing climbing!

The descent was crappy as expected. A huge boulder covers most of the first rappel station, smashed against one of the bolts. So we rappelled off of the 1 remaining bolt, in the running waterfall. Afterwards, two more double rope rappels onto the snow slope got us to the bottom of the gully (with some kick stepping to gain the last anchor on rappeller's left).

My hardest climb yet! Loved it... followed the entire route, but may lead it in a year or two. Aided the 10c face, but all else was good free. Fell off the 5.9 roof once, but stuck it on the next try. No "give me's" on this one!

Fantastic climb. My first long multipitch and we swinged leads. Yey! We were the first party on the rock, and the next party is three pitches away, nice to have a relaxed environment. Didn't like the descent very much. It took us 6.5 hours to go up, and 4 hours to come down.

An awesome route with fantastic views. I had to step on a couple of the bolts on the crux face though-DOH! I'll have to go back & free it at some point.

Great climb. Nice view of El Cap at the belays. Lots of water in the gully descent made it a little messy. :)
